Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Put melons on a plate to collect juice, cut melons in 1/2 lengthwise.
  2. Clean and cut off rind of melons.
  3. While the melon is still on the plate, cut thin slices lengthwise so the slices are long. (For a thinner slice, use a potato peeler).
  4. Leave the melon on the plate until ready to assemble your "sushi".
  5. On a cutting board, cut thin, long julienne sticks of jicama. Cut the sticks 1/2" to 1" longer than the widest of your melon strips.
  6. Pour the melon juice into a small bowl and mix in the honey and ginger.
  7. Lie strips on cutting board, one at a time.
  8. Place 3-4 sticks of jicama on melon flush with one side of the melon - -this will allow a flat side when the rolled "sushi" sits up.
  9. Roll the melon slice around the jicama and sit up on its side. Trim any jicama that might hang over so it sits flat.
  10. Drizzle the honey sauce over the "sushi".
  11. Sprinkle sesame seeds lightly over the fruit.
  12. You may toast the seeds if you wish a nuttier flavor.

Excellent. I heated the juice to bring out the honey and ginger flavor. Then cooled. It is a wonderful source of ingredients to lower your cholesterol. It would be a crowd stopper as a fruit appetizer!
